Welcome to Litchfield County
 
Litchfield County Farm Bureau was one of the first county Farm Bureaus to form in Connecticut. We are dedicated to raising awareness of agriculture in Litchfield County. We work through legislative advocacy, market promotion and education.Litchfield County Farm Bureau strives to increase farm income and to improve the quality of life not only for Litchfield County farmers, but also for their consumers.
 
Litchfield County ranks first in all of Connecticut with more than 970 farms (Source: 2007 Census of Agriculture). Many of these farms are raising crops, hay and vegetables which contribute to the green open spaces people love to see in our state. Litchfield County also has thriving greenhouse, nursery, and equine industries. Close to 300 of our farms are related to dairy cattle producing milk and dairy products, beef cattle, poultry, and other livestock, on family-owned facilities. Other farming commodities include Christmas trees, honey, maple syrup, orchards, and wineries. Overall, our number of farms is increasing in Litchfield County.
 
Programs sponsored by Litchfield County Farm Bureau through the year include an Annual Winter Dinner with our legislators in January, Food check-out participation with our county FFA Chapters in February, a spring seminar, scholarship awards to Litchfield County applicants, a policy development meeting in August for our members, and our annual dinner meeting in October.
 
With more than 600 Litchfield County Farm Bureau members, we have direct input to forming the policy of our statewide organization which is voted on at the annual meeting each fall. Joining Connecticut Farm Bureau and being active in Litchfield County Farm Bureau's localinitiatives is the most effective way to influence the future of agriculture in our county.
